The Tarot Apothecary
discover the herbal wisdom of the tarot
The tarot is not just images on cards but stories of the stars, counter-cultural messages, and hidden hermetic philosophy leading us on a path of self-discovery and healing.
You live an intersectional life - your tarot and healing practice should reflect that.
One of the most valuable aspects of the tarot is its intersectionality. In The Tarot Apothecary we’ll look at traditional meanings of the cards along with their astrological correspondences and elemental nature to help us make connections with the vibrant world of plant healing.
Tradition affirms what so many of us have been trying to reclaim - a complex intersectionality of healing work. The tarot is not just images on cards but stories of the stars, counter-cultural messages, and hidden hermetic philosophy leading us on a path of self-discovery and healing. Applying the powers of our deeply personal intuition to interpreting the tarot guides us beyond the framework of tradition into new visions of inclusivity and storytelling. Tarot is a practice that survives and thrives hundreds of years after it’s creation because it is so adaptable and useful in its ability to change and shift for the needs of each new generation of tarot reader.
"This course is so much more than I hoped for and I’m savoring every nugget. Tarot, herbs, astrology, magick... how did you cram so much into this and still have it affordable and completely accessible and not overwhelming? You, Alexis, are magick!" - Christine
What The Tarot Apothecary Is + Is Not
It’s important to highlight what this course is not. In The Tarot Apothecary you will not be taught how to diagnose in any way, shape or form using tarot. Nor will you be taught magickal cures to all that ails you or how to become a tarot reader or an herbalist. There isn’t any fatalism or binary-only options within this course that paint the world and your life as pre-determined and limited (there’s enough of that going around already, thank you very much).
What you will be taught in The Tarot Apothecary is far more valuable. You’ll be taught how to observe your inner workings with the tools of plant and card. In turn, you can help others do the same if you are called to serve as a healer. You’ll learn how to connect with the tarot as not only a tool of divination and self-reflection but one of healing. The tarot is very good at describing hidden needs, elemental excess and lack, and patterns of the personality which affect our health. You’ll be shown how to honor the wisdom of your body and your intuition to help you make choices regarding your wellbeing that is centered in the uniqueness of your needs. Finally, you’ll learn how to interact with the tarot as a living materia medica full of plant wisdom and star knowledge to incorporate into your healing practice.
"I absolutely love your class. It came at the perfect time. I've had a tarot block for about six months. I would stare at the cards and feel nothing. I decided to do a tarot reading asking about how to read tarot again. The next day I found Tarot Apothecary in my mail box. I'm reading my cards everyday and connecting with them on a much deeper level since starting class." - H

"I like the format of the course and the breadth of the content. I can learn and play for hours at a time and then come back to it another day. It's full of deep connections with tarot and practical information on herbalism." - Rachel
The world of tarot and herbal healing have been intertwined for me since day one.
I’m an intersectional herbalist, magickal mentor, and weaver of remedies who was lucky enough to have herbalism and tarot come into my life at the same time. Through my practice I've learned that the tarot, when combined with the wisdom of herbal medicine and magick, is a profoundly powerful tool of intersectional healing.
And we need more tools that are as complex and radiant as we are.
My intersectionality, and the reason I do the work that I do, arises from my lived experience as a nonbinary queer, a mixed-race womxn, and a practicing witch. I'm sharing this work with you because I think we all deserve the tools that help us to be who we are in all of our wisdom and complexity.
I hope you'll join me in my circle of tarot readers and healers looking to discover just how wild and liberating our magick really is.

"I have been a professional tarot reader for years now. I wanted to take tarot to a whole new level. I’m new at herbology , it was wonderful how this course married the two. I was able to gain a deeper understanding of tarot. I understand much more now when drinking a warm cup of tea. I highly recommend this course to anyone new or seasoned who want to take their tarot reading up a notch. Education is never wasted, be open to what the universe has to offer, and if you’ve crossed paths with Worts + Cunning Apothecary, know that it wasn’t by chance. High Five to Alexis for creating this, I look forward to always learning more. " - Luiza
"[The Tarot Apothecary] is a lovingly put together course, that provides a gentle but insightful journey into the cards and how they may bring healing in your life. " Louise
"I love this class. Alexis Cunningfolk's gentle, healing approach led me easily into a deeper understanding of the plant spirits. The card and plant profiles are fantastic. Working with Alexis' spreads, I have found several plant allies to give me insight into how to grow projects I am working on. The idea of Tarot as a healing tool is so beautifully approached in this class and has grounded me in both my Tarot and plant spirit practices. My "busy mind" has quieted down and I can rely on the cards and the plants to show me what I need to know." - Susan
